Our client was planning a new sterile pharmaceutical manufacturing facility. We came in to help with site selection, programming, budgeting, and design. Civil design services including site grading, roadways, utilities, power, parking, and security fell to us too.
The project involved two filling lines using isolators and E beam sterilization, terminal sterilizers, two compounding suites, wash and component prep rooms, and associated airlocks and gowning rooms. There’s a high-bay warehouse with a Johnson air rotation unit and a prefabricated DEA vault. Plus an office space with open cubicles and a quality assurance/quality control laboratory with sterility testing.
One of the biggest hurdles in this project was budget, but we met those constraints by striking a balance between conventional construction and pre-fabricated options. This new facility will contribute to healthier communities through better practices and equipment.
